The Laval Entrepreneur Mentor Program is designed to give aspiring students from all disciplines an opportunity to build relationships with some of the Central Valley's leaders and entrepreneurs.

The program provides weekly forums for learning directly from the experiences of successful entrepreneurs including visits to businesses, venues for social gatherings, field trips, and professional skill development. Students not only gain insights directly from their mentors, but also get hands-on experience by receiving behind-the-scenes tours of a few of the Central Valley’s most successful businesses.
